Does Resharper contain a Convert to Direct Cast refactoring?

I have code like this all over the code base:

     MultiList ml = this.CriteriaList.ItemByName(SC_SAM_CATEGORIES) as MultiList;

I want to convert it to direct cast:

     MultiList ml = (MultiList) this.CriteriaList.ItemByName(SC_SAM_CATEGORIES);

with a possible bonus of replacing

MultiList ml
var ml
Does Resharper contain a refactoring like this, perhaps via an addin? If so, how do I turn it on?

The suggestion to include this refactoring was made in 2007 - hopefully it's been implemented.
